Intro to Power Tools for Women and Non-Binary

This workshop is for women and non-binary folks who wish to gain introductory knowledge and experience with power tools. Participants will learn about and use some basic tools, including the miter saw, power drill and palm sander. Following demonstrations, participants can create their own simple and unique hanging shelf from repurposed materials. We hope that following this workshop, you will feel more empowered and comfortable using power tools!
